The name Bobi Wine or Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu is on the lips and minds many Ugandans and this didn't seem to differ so much with the head of state President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni during Catherine Kusaasira's concert.
While speaking duringcCatherine Kusasira Sserumaga’s concert at Serena hotel, President Museveni threw the hall in a frenzy when he mistakenly called Bebe Cool “Bobi” before catching himself mid-sentence.However, it was too late as those in attendance burst in loud laughter and cheering at Museveni’s honest mistake. He smiled it off and corrected himself.
“I have attended many concerts. I think this is the third. There was one in Munyonyo and then another by my son Bobi…” Museveni said.
Despite his honest slip of the tongue, Museveni revealed to those who thought he was taking Bobi Wine lightly that indeed the old man was worried about Bobi and constantly haunted by his rising popularity so much so that his name is in his head and on his mind.
